their secret sauce that's more important than the polling is that mr. romney is winning independents. so there. romney has this thing in the bag. carl rove, for the republicans this year, he took to "the wall street journal" this week to patiently explain to the people who don't understand that these numbers that look so bad for mr. romney do not matter or they are wrong. or they are wrong and they don't noe matter. because he says democrats are not winning early voting by enough. and he says the polls make assumptions about turnout that he describes as absurd. it also describes some stuff that makes him believe romney is going to win like crowd size and closing arguments. that shows that mitt romney is totally going to win this thing. both are trying to convince the country it's obvious they are going to win. it's worth listening to the arguments and checking to see if the arguments are based in good sense. but honestly, it's also worth recognizing that every campaign on both sides does this every time. for example, here is how this particular phenomenon looked the day before the election in
a speech as closing argument, mr. romney indicted his opponent's record >> candidate obama promised change but couldn't deliver it. i promise change, but i have a record of achieving it. >> reporter: and in four days, promised a fresh start. >> i'll lead america to a better place, where confidence in the future is certain, not questioned. this is not a time for america to settle. >> reporter: still, both candidates' electoral fortunes may rest on ohio. >> ohio, i'm betting on you, i'm betting on you. >> reporter: today, accusing mr. romney of running false ads on the auto industry, that implied jeep is moving jobs to china, ads even the automakers dismiss as untrue. >> you don't scare that up, to get votes, do you want a president to tell you what he thinks? or somebody who is going to? still, both emphasize the bipartisan theme. >> i will work with anybody of any party to move this country forward. >> i won't just represent one party, i'll represent one nation. >> reporter: brian, tonight, these rallies are all about energizing the supporters, and driving up support for tuesday. >> peter
or more in a major rally in ohio, mr. romney is using president obama's own rhetoric about voting against him. the president suggested that his supporters should vote for revenge mitt romney in colcalifornia spring and dubuque threw that back at the president. >> today president obama it was yesterday, you probably heard about he asked supporters to vote for revenge. i ask the american people to vote for love of country. >> mr. romny -- mr. romney said that over and over and over again in an attempt to cast mr. obama and his presidency as one of division and suggest he will unite the country and reach across the aisle in a bipartisan way. the romney complaint is that president obama made promiseless of hope and change and couldn't deliver. he couldn't because of grid lock that he caused. he simply doesn't have an administration to get things done. >> analyst said it is it like a courtroom where attorneys make the closing arguments. it is getting last, but we are hearing new lineups. >> that's right. and when you have the campaigns packing their calendars as busy as they have in 73 hours a
around the world. confidence in american government. an attempt by mr. romney to say that not only is he ready to run the country, but he's ready to run it in a way with a bipartisan hand, something he's been talking about for the last couple of weeks. as all candidates tend to do despite all the partisanship, looking for swing voters. mr. romney recognizes that it is very, very close in ohio and new hampshire, the polls all indicate it's quite close. romney's senior advisors acknowledge that as he said today, just a moment ago, the door is open and it's going to take a lot more work to walk through it to victory. for that, he needs people to rally and get out the vote, which is always what the final 72 hours is all about. >> in these time hours action the candidate and his staff working really around the clock. it's nonstop, one event to the next to the next. what is the mood like with the staff, with the candidates' family? what's it like on the trail with them? >> reporters and candidates in campaigns always have a natural friction. but there is something of a disaster mentality that
to remember what mr. romney has said across the years and months, to account for his breathtaking ideological shifts. within limits all candidates say and do what they have to say and do to win. mr. romney by contrast seems to be betting voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills, and a general inability to look behind the curtain. >>> here is some breaking news from new york. wnbc reports that the new york marathon cancelled. by the way, the big problem, i believe, was staten island. that was going to be the starting point. they didn't want all those people coming out there from all around the world. thank you, david corn. thank you, joy read. >>> coming up, all eyes are on ohio. both candidates are focusing on the buckeye state. senator brown is fighting to hold his seat out there. we are going to talk to him about the situation in ohio. >>> control of the united states senate is on the line. we all know that. missouri, senator claire mccaskill, the most closely run race. and her opponent, carl aiken. >>> the president's response to the devastation caused by sandy earned from governor
essential information, how other than an assumption that voters are too dim to remember what mr. romney has said across the years and months, to account for his breathtaking ideological shifts. within limits all candidates say and do what they have to say and do to win. mr. romney by contrast seems to be betting voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills, and a general inability to look behind the curtain. a "wizard of oz" reference. >> he's counting on those things. it's almost like he's in "men in black" and he thinks he has a flashy thing where he can say something and reverse himself and count on not being called for it. between fouling and the way that mitt romney has run, in a lot of ways if this is the way you can win a presidency, if he can win this way, i think it says horrible things about our policies. >> using the word lie. if you're willing to completely fool your base -- >> your own base. >> you might fool everybody. >> he's lying to the base or lying to the middle. i think one of the essential questions that will be settled on tuesday is does bs work? can you put out the
hampshire twice, the smallest swing state that may be edging in mr. romney's direction. >> cenk: all right, now where is it edging? lucky for you we have the numbers. latest polls 50%-47% in favor of president obama in ohio! now what did i tell you was key to the election night? you're going to look out for owin. that's "o" as in ohio "w" which is, "i," in "with a and nevada. they are there with the two two first baptist church to four-point--there with two two- two- to four-point lead. mark hamil, ana kasparian michael shure, jayar jackson get going. >> when i get rattled with these polls, and andreas must i think they skew the national polls. >> cenk: they're mad at nate silver for doing math. oh i can't believe he contemplated the polls. >> it's reassuring to me. attacking his sexuality calling him gay. where did that come from? what does that have to do with it. >> cenk: anybody who does math is obviously gay. didn't you miss that memo? >> i think mark passed his 10 minutes. is he banned. >> cenk: let's go to a-21, early voting is critical in ohio. there we have fascinating numbers. on
, they mentioned mitt romney's name and he said don't boo, vote, voting is the best way to get revenge. and mr. romney has been pounding the president ever since for that, watch. >> yesterday the president something, you may have heard by now that i think surprised a lot of people, speaking to an audience he said voting is the best revenge, he told the supporters, voting for revenge, vote for revenge? let me tell you what i'd like to tell you, vote for love of country. (cheers). and that dove tails into what is romney's affirmative positive message, the type of agenda he'll bring to the country. five points to expand, expanded education, ways to improve trade, crackdown on china, cut taxes and balance the budget and small business and makes the argument he has a record of that achievement mr. romney didn't match being in office-- mr. obama can't match being in the office virtually four years and he made the remarks in new hampshire and in ohio and by the estimates, 30,000 people in the crowd, by other estimates 20,000. and he'll come back to iowa to sleep and three hours in the sack another th
estimates that 255 are solidly in the obama camp or leaning toward him. for mr. romney it's 206. so the election will come down to the nine swing states that could go either way. bob schieffer is our chief washington correspondent and anchor of "face the nation" and, atb, what do you make of how close it is in the swing states? >> well, it started out close and it is even closer now. scott, i kind of took a survey of our pollsters. they can not recall a time when these battleground states are closer than they are right now with the possible exception of ohio where the president has a teeny lead. esl of these states are in the margin of error. what that means is there are eight battleground states out there that either of these candidates could win. it's just going to come down to who gets their voters to the polls. it's going to be all about turnout. this race is an absolute dead heat from everything that we have that we can measure it by. >> pelley: bob, thanks very much. bob will have the latest on the campaign and the aftermath of the storm this sunday on "face the nation." they'
in the midwest swing state mr. romney revved up and ohio crowd again telling them they would most likely pick the next president the republican nominee claimed that president barack obama has failed to live up to his promises and said that his business experience will bring faster economic growth. early in wisconsin home state running mate one said he would do a better job than the president of reason across party lines to end gridlock in congress in ohio president barack obama touted upbeat jobs numbers and also listed his foreign policy successes and the recovery of the auto industry. the american auto industry is back on top the war in afghanistan is ending al al-qaeda has been decimated. the president holds a slight lead in most battleground states and is expected to make one more stop in most of those states including florida and new hampshire and colorado and nevada. romney will visit many of the same states the final jobs report is largely positive. employers added 171,000 new jobs beating analysts' expectations. experts say it will improve the job market with more people trying to fin
will read a bit of it. when he was asked about fema, mr. romney said absolutely every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the state, that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector. that's better. he talks about taking fema and divesting it into the states. yet, this week, i think that statement is many could go back to haunt him. is this more than anything a teachable moment for mitt romney? >> storms bring the best and the worst out in america. they both seem to show up during a natural disaster. a natural disaster is one that crosses a couple of states. i lived through hurricane hugo in 1989 and watched the politics of a hurricane. we were out of power. my business was down. for politicians, they have to be very careful. it can make or break a political career. this is where the american public expect the government to step up, not just for a couple of days or a couple of sound bites. right now, it is going to be the sound bites that will get us to this election. president obama has show
in the campaign of republican presidential nominee mitt romney, a contempt for the electorate. mr. romney seems to be betting that voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills, and a general inability to look behind the curtain. we hope the results tuesday prove him wrong. eric, jonathan, jonathan, why don't we go to you first. >> the problem we have had as an editorial board with mitt romney, it's encapsulated in that editorial. read it online and it will be in the paper tomorrow. >> www washingtonpost.com. >> where the problem with mitt romney is he says something on monday. it's something different by monday afternoon which is completely different or gone back to where he was on monday by tuesday. he won't tell us anything about his tax plans. we know he is going to reduce the rates by 20%. but at the debate he said let's just say $25,000. he pulls figures out of thin air. and he thinks he can be elected president of the united states. on vapor, really. >> yes, yes. >> and so it got under the skin of us on the board. we endorsed the president last week for reelection. it wasn't a sis boom
of that. should mr. romney went, it says if mitt romney wins next week, enough democrats would probably be left to block his promise to roll back wall street rules enacted in response to the financial crisis. romney would be expected to appoint new leaders of the treasury department, securities and exchange commission and other agencies that would take a less aggressive approach. instead of timothy geithner romney is expected to fill the position with a less activist nominee. in addition, a romney administration could leave some posts under weekend acting heads. florida calling in, tom on our line for independents. caller: i am voting for romney mack. i would like to see romney in the senate. i do believe he is out there with his friends having a good time. and you show me your friends are. host: a toss up when it comes to seats in the senate. 11 seats. arizona, connecticut, indiana, massachusetts, montana, virginia, wisconsin. massachusetts, this is -- on our line for democrats. caller: thank you for c-span. i am a democrat, and voting for obama. i am voting for elizabeth warren. i do
. but first jon stewart on ohio. mr. burns on romney and fox and friends on edge. when it doesn't fit anywhere else, we put it in the viewfinder. [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> there have been good things about voting early. vice president biden take it away. >> i'm not saying that each early voter gets a free cheeseburger, but i'm not saying that they don't either. [ thunder ] >> i have to say despite all those inimaginebly horrible good jobs numbers i'm feeling confident. those are drapes to hang in the burns bedroom? >> the franken bedroom. >> if your voter suppression throughout this beautiful country enables romney to oust barack obama, we will burn this mother. [ bleep ] down. >> number six. >> if you vote early you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry that's not accurate. >> o.h. god i love that. it's so fun. >> yes, it's not that fun. our city has got a way better calling response thing. new york! yeah. >> number two. >> early voters will receive a $5 million donation from donald trump. >> mr. attorney general, as i remember, mitt romney wrote that op ed that said the gm should go through a manag
made it to the 50% mark. mr. romney has 47% of likely ohio voters. the nbc wall street journal poll taken during the same period shows obama over the 50% threshhold, at 51% and mr. romney at 45%. and with the 18 electoral votes, you can see ohio is the battleground of the battleground states. you can see what happens in the middle of the state in the capitol of columbus, my colleague is there in the state. so don, what appears to be what you're hearing there? what are people focusing on? what is the criteria people are using to make up their minds if they have not already? >> reporter: well first, i think that people think that governor romney and the president have taken up residence here in the state because they have been here so much. they will make a couple of more stops before the next 72 hours. this is the state, to really make up their minds it is the economy, the economy, the economy, and i think that is what people are really concerned about. the social issues, obviously, that is part of it. but the time now, the time has passed, i should say for social issues. since that
is following mr. romney along the trail. so jim, you heard him there. he did -- he went through his five-point plan again, not giving a whole lot of specifics but certainly trying to lay out what he would do if indeed he is elected come tuesday. >> that's right, randi. you know, at this point, it's hard to get all of those specifics out there. i mean, he has been hammering the five-point plan repeatedly for the last couple of weeks of this campaign, and i think by now his supporters probably know what those specifics are, but you're right. i mean, he is laying out his agenda for his first 100 days in office, you might say, but randi, i have to tell you, one of the things we picked up here on the campaign trail in the last couple of days, mitt romney has really gone after what he believes is a weakness in the obama campaign strategy. the romney campaign believes that president obama, and they are making the case is, trying to make the case, that president obama has sort of forgotten his mandate for when he came into office, that he was supposed to bring about this era of post-partisanship
four years. my concern is with mr. romney. he is going to do big change. i am not sure what that change is going to be. he keeps changing what he says. i am concerned with mitt romney and paul ryan. there are lots of issues and things that i do not think forever answer directly. host: let's hear from charles. if you are in of ohio were so much of the action is unfolding. caller: that is true. host: what is it like? have been out to any campaign event? caller: i have not. i get a lot of calls. first of all, where is the church in defending moral issues? we cannot expect our politicians to take on this fight it the church is only passive. what is our moral compass that our politics are more important than our faith? our faith should decide how we boats. -- vote. we tried to put got out of the white house, i think we're asking for serious problems. mine is a morally based. host: joseph, independent caller. caller: when you consider mitt romney, he has been running since the day his father lost the election. knowing this, you would think he would have the decency to have a one of his sons j
's insane. i think mr. mitt romney ought to be pushing back. >> as a quick extension, his idea instead of doing that with the economy back on its heels, raise taxes, which he will do if he gets reelected and impose more regulation on the economy. that's his solution to the problem we had before. >> i think the contrast in these closing arguments are very telling. obama decides to double down on the character assassination and class warfare, romney is talking bipartisanship, and he was a governor of a blue state. one sounds more presidential than the other. >> paul: the president is throwing out attempts to say, well, i'm going to get a big budget deal with congress, i real want bipartisan immigration deal, hey, maybe, even tax reform. >> this is really important, yeah, because he's being very critical of romney and last weeks we're seeing the glimmer of hope and change obama and trying to get that back and the testament with independent voters and women and they voted for him in 2008 because, again, he claimed to be a new type of politician. i don't think this was working. it's falling
election, mike huckabee is out in columbus, ohio with us. mr. governor, big day yesterday for mitt romney. he had 30,000 people energized at an event there in ohio. one of the reasons people are excited about him he has a plan for the economy. if you look at the unemployment number yesterday it went the wrong direction. up that frar 8%. it's at 7.9%. >> steve, i will be honest with you, i think the message if i were an employer, and i am. what i say to employees is simply this. if you really want to keep your job, you need to hope barack obama doesn't keep his if you are determined that he needs to keep his you need to be prepared to lose his. if he is reelected what you have had the last four. the numbers haven't improved. many cases gotten worse because his policies are antibusiness. i know that sounds harsh but it's the hard reality. when you continue to threaten people with higher taxes, increased cost of regulation. government intervention you scare employers from wanting to hire anybody. >> gretchen: one of the words tossed about this morning is stagnation when you look at the joble
change and prosperity if mitt romney is elected. and one of the new criticisms that mr. romney says, you heard is the reference to the president's rhetoric on the trail yesterday. mr. obama was talking about g.o.p. policies on the trail and the crowd began to boo. and he said, don't boo, vote, voting is the best revenge. and romney, as you heard there a moment ago picked up on it saying, the president has now reduced his campaign to small things and attacks, whereas what romney argues notwithstanding his own attacks of president obama, is that he's offering hope and change. borrowed rhetoric from the 2008 obama campaign itself perhaps, but none of less, in that completion of his rhetoric about obama and revenge, he says, what he hopes people do is vote for their love of country. all about a positive close, notwithstanding again, the criticisms implicit and explicit throughout the stump speech in what is now 82 hours before the first polls close on the east coast tuesday night. we'll send it back to you in new york. >> brian: carl, i know you've got a sense of people on the ground that mc

compared to 46% who side with romney. on friday, mr. obama made a three-stop blitz here in ohio, staking his closing argument on the auto bailout, which is widely popular here. and which republicans oppose. he also slammed romney for claiming that jeep is shipping jobs to china. it's a claim the romney campaign defends that has been widely discredited. take a listen to what president obama had to say. >> the car companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. gm said we think creating jobs in the united states should be a source of bipartisan pride. and i couldn't agree more. >> reporter: now early voting has begun here in ohio with 35% saying they've already voted early or plan to do so. obama is leading among those voters 62-36%, but romney is up among election day voters 52-42%. the fact that president obama has a number of planned visits here in ohio before election day suggests that the obama campaign is not satisfied that they have locked down this state. as for the president's state of mind, david axelrod said the president is exhilarated and that his stump speech
